It means it waits forever, or until a trigger file appears - but a
trigger file is optional, so its possible to create an awkward
situation. I'm not happy with that default, but feedback from Merlin
suggested production problems with people not understanding that.

I'm happy to change to whatever consensus is, so if you think that's
dumb, just shout.
